    "I love the new painting! It's actually a little more golden and fluid than it looks in the pic and I love the movement; everything in my house is a little on the warm and yellow and gold side so it could hang pretty much anywhere.

He loves the frame and said that he's never owned a real oil painting. 😊 But most importantly, he loves the subject matter and he and my husband spent a lot of time reminiscing this morning about hikes they took there years ago. This part of the Hudson is, by far, their favorite! Thank you SO much for making this Christmas gift PERFECT."

    ------------------------------------------ If you haven't seen the two-DVD set, "The Impressionists", you don't know what you're missing!

    I rented it from Netflix and absolutely loved it. It is an enactment of the lives of Monet, Renoir, Manet, Cezanne, Degas, and other Impressionist painters living at that time around Paris. Fascinating and eye-opening!

Almost Spring on South Mountain

I started this painting a couple of weeks ago from a photo I took in Palenville, and worked on it a few days since then. For some reason, it seems to have taken me forever to get this one off the easel, but I think it is finally done.

Fifty years or so ago, you’d have seen the grand Catskill Mountain House looming on the escarpment to the right of the peak of South Mountain. Today it’s just an amazing view from up there that extends for hundreds of miles, and takes in over sixty miles of the Hudson River. The spring melt cascades down the mountain in streams and waterfalls that gave Palenville its nickname as “The Village of Falling Waters”.

This painting was done with a limited palette of Raw Sienna, Cadmium Yellow Primrose, Red Iron Oxide, Ultramarine Blue, Phthalo Blue, and Titanium White.

For some reason, the left side of the sky looks darker than the actual painting. It’s always impossible to get the digital image to exactly match. The room lighting must have been darker on that side when I snapped the picture!

Essence of New Spring

Every so often, I like to play with paints and ideas like a child in a sandbox. Today I did some small plein air paintings, experimenting with different styles and ideas. This abstract landscape is based totally on design and composition. The idea was to support an energetic design with bold contrasts, adventurous colors, and strong lines. I looked for elements in my yard along the brook, and arranged them for a dynamic composition. I examined the color of each large section of the landscape, and selected a pure, higher-chroma color to represent that segment of the painting. The colors are cerulean blue, cobalt violet, cobalt blue, and raw sienna, plus waterproof black India ink applied with a brush.

Subtle Shades of Spring

8×6″, Oils on Raymar canvas panel

I painted at Ward Pound Ridge Reservation today, admiring the subtle spring colors by the trout stream. My palette consisted of:
Titanium White
Cadmium Yellow Light
Pyrrole Red
Transparent Red Oxide
Raw Sienna
Cerulean Blue
French Ultramarine
Ivory Black
Viridian

I’m sure I didn’t need so many colors to portray this subtle landscape, but they were already on my palette, so I figured I’d put them to work!

Hudson Valley Dreams

This magnificent spot, with the red barns nestled in the valley below the Catskills, is about five minutes from our house. There are mountains and rolling fields everywhere you look. Locations like this one are what make me realize why the Hudson River School painters were so drawn to this area!

It was only 26 degrees yesterday morning when I painted this, so it was done from the warm comfort of my car, parked off on the side of the road!

Waterfall in Monochrome

Monochrome studies are such a great way to work on values. When I don’t have time to do a full-color painting, a monochrome sketch is always a good way to spend the time. I mixed together leftover paint from a morning painting to create this reddish-brownish-purplish mix, took a seat on the nearest rock, and used that with titanium white for an oil sketch of a small waterfall.

Here’s a photo of my Guerrilla thumbox at work with this painting! Isn’t it the cutest thing? It holds everything I need for small paintings.

This painting was done from a photo I took at Muscoot Farm in Somers, NY. Too cute! Spring is just around the corner, and that means the baby lambs are on the way.

This is an older painting that has never appeared on my website nor in a show. I just took a picture of it yesterday for the first time. My style has changed quite a bit since I painted this. I thought it would be interesting for my viewers to see something I did many years ago.

I am offering this huge painting for sale now for the first time, and at a great price!

A couple of years ago, there was an amazing sunrise over the lake on a winter morning. I grabbed my camera, dashed out the door, and took hundreds of photos for future paintings. Here is another painting of the “Majestic Morning” series, just off the easel.

My palette for this painting was:
Titanium White
Cadmium Yellow Lemon
Cadmium Yellow Pale
Cadmium Yellow Medium
Raw Sienna
Cadmium Orange
Cadmium Red
Permanent Rose
Cerulean Blue
Cobalt Blue
Ultramarine Blue Deep
Ivory Black
Viridian

I didn’t really need all those colors to do this painting, but since I’d put them all out on my palette, what the heck! I dipped into everything.
